I test drove an E28 to see if I could live with one (I think that chassis is a good candidate for an LS3). But, I can't see myself driving an E28 unless it was a euro M5, regardless of the powerplant. The thought of 430HP for $6K is very attractive though.

I don't have the budget for both. Unless I found a nice, low mileage, matching VIN, no rust M3 with a blown S14... that would be doable

The new owner said he is going to repaint the car, reinstall the AC, and fix some minor issues. I am stoked that he is improving the car.
